suspect hillary clinton might be thinking about that as well. rvr was in his 70s when he ran for president as well. i think biden is an ambitious guy. he has tried to run for president twice before. it didn't work out, but he is the vice president. paul ryan is a young guy. he is only 42 years old. i suspect even if romney-ryan loses, he has a huge future. he is very popular with the conservative base of the republican party. he is intelligent, smart, good-looking. i suspect he is going to be moving as well, but right now they're not worried about 2016. they're worried about tonight. it will be a lot of fun. we're in it for the long haul. good to see you, as always. >> biden-ryan, they have one thing in common. the support of their wives. we're going to look at the two women who will be on the edge of their seats tonight.

's solve this. >>> i want to take you live to indiana and hoosierville. this is a rally bill clinton is taking part in today. it's actually for the indiana dec democrats and this is a get out the vote that president clinton is taking part in. he's got a busy schedule he's ahead of because he's taking part in a lot of events for president obama and joe biden. he's headed to arizona on wednesday and iowa later in the week, as well. so today this is an effort at a high school. it's north central high school on indianapolis' north side. let's listen in really quick. >> they started, as people enrolled, they started whittling down the profit margin because they realized that as soon as people could get the preventive services and people stayed healthier and the costs stayed down, you couldn't justify wasting the taxpayers' money on that kind of profit margin. so they got some new recommendations which as i said the aarp endorsed and we can cut this profit margin back down to $1.14 for every dollar you spend on regular medicare. in fairness, the people that started it said it ought to be e
, is it going to be the former president bill clinton or is it going to be, i don't know, bon jovi? >> reporter: wow, you know, that's a tough one. i have to say probably both of them will help him because, you know, the president not only bon jovi but also katy perry is here, george clooney, jennifer hudson. a lot of other big names that appeal to a broad array of voters from the old school like earth wind and fire, so older audiences but also some of the young people as well. so i think the president's covering it all with the various stars who are helping here at this fund-raiser but you can't take anything away from what the xlin believes former president bill clinton brings to the table, not only in the speeches he delivers, but also out there in fund-raising. he's held a number of fund-raising events and this week as well here in california he will be holding a fund-raiser. one expected to raise about $160,000. so he's key to the campaign in addition to these entertainers, don. >> so a debate, two big names in the obama campaign, talked about today about the president's performance. what'
gotten its vote except bill clinton in 1996. and that goes back to 1972. but we have a new poll from rocky mountain, a rocky mountain poll showing obama 42%, romney, 42% among all voters. that is surprising, because just a few weeks ago romney was ahead. we rate arizona as leaning romney, and this poll was taken after the presidential debate that most people thought, even president obama thought that he didn't bring his a-game. so it is a little bit surprising that this poll shows obama slightly ahead of romney. >> yeah, at least it makes the contest more interesting and not predictable. so let's talk about tuesday's debate format. our candy crowley, she is going to be great, make that raddatz, we knew was going to be great. how is this going to be different? >> well, it is a town hall format, different than just the usual area, the candidates are speaking directly to the voters themselves. they're having to gauge or maybe you know, modify their answers based on the reaction, right? it is a lot tougher, it presents a lot more opportunities for mistakes. you remember, don, in 1992, pr
flopping during the debate. former president bill clinton goes even further. >> so just show up with a sunny face and say, i didn't say all that stuff i said the last two years. >> next, does mitt romney have a multiple personality? plus, what he told an iowa newspaper that's making some people scratch their heads. all energy development comes with some risk, but proven technologies allow natural gas producers to supply affordable, cleaner energy, while protecting our environment. across america, these technologies protect air - by monitoring air quality and reducing emissions... ...protect water - through conservation and self-contained recycling systems... ... and protect land - by reducing our footprint and respecting wildlife. america's natural gas... domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... that's smarter power today. domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... mike rowe here at a ford tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford dealer. who has 11 major brands to choose from? your ford dealer. who's offering a rebate? your ford dealer. w

, he won a tough campaign four years ago including against hillary clinton. then he won against john mccain. he did fine in those debates. and now he's been president of the united states for four years. so they werexpecting he would do an excellent job. obviously, he did not do an excellent job. right now looking ahead to the debate tomorrow night, ashleigh, i think these are both really qualified, smart guys. joe biden's got a ton of experience. but let's not forget, paul ryan, he's only in his early 40s, but he's been around in washington for 20 years, going back to when he worked for jack kemp, when he worked for bill bennett in power of america. he's got a ton of washington experience as well. and when it comes to domestic economic issues, budget-related issues, he's really at the top of his game. where he is vulnerable, in my opinion, will be on some of the national security issues. this is an area where biden really knows his stuff. he was a former chairman of the foreign relations committee, obviously. he's been vice president of the united states for these past four years. so w
hillary clinton. they're going to make recommendations, and you've seen in previous attacks such as the attack in the '80s on the marine barracks in beirut or those 1998 bombings in the u.s. embassies in kenya and tanzania, specific congressional legislation passed to make sure there was adequate security. i think there are going to be a lot of recommendations that were made. there might be some finger pointing but hopefully develop new rules of the road to make sure even as u.s. diplomats have to operate in these dangerous areas they got the adequate security they need. >> i have been to the place where those marines died, in beirut, and i am here to tell you it is now a parking lot and not one mention anywhere of the disaster that befell those men and women there back then. elise, thank you. as if to underscore reporting now, today, just today, a yemeni security official working for the u.s. embassy in yemen, killed on his way to work. yemeni officials suspect it's an al qaeda attack. this is the yemeni national, not an american, but working for the americans. in choosing
's senior foreign policy advisers were looking to jfk, harry truman, even bill clinton in his second term as presidents that they are looking at in terms of shaping a potential doctrine in the future. last week a lot of people you heard a lot of pundits on the right and left saying maybe mitt romney is moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, perhaps we'll see a little bit of that today in the foreign policy realm. >> stand by if you will. thank you for that as the crowd begins to build hint you and all eyes on romney's speech this morning and the president for his part couldn't be farther aw away. he is out west. he might be speaking to some. he is drumming up money from a-listers and wig money doen ars. brie on akeilar is live with us and looking to at $10 million to the $181 million he raised last month. what is the plan of attack? >> he needs the money. i will tell you, ashley, tomorrow he is going to ohio which is a key battleground state where he is doing better in the optimpolls than mitt rom. the other thing he is doing is dedicating a memorial to caesar chavez, aid latino
and hillary clinton, there were some high profile african-americans who supported hillary clinton. maya angelou one of them. and there wasn't this kind of backlash. so the question is, is this more about race and supporting someone other than the black candidate or is it more about the policy and supporting a republican white candidate? >> i think it's a little bit of both. when you relaflect back to the 2008 election, we're talking about two democrats and we know the the african-american community votes overwhelming for democratic candidates. 90%. but it 's also race. and you saw that in the twitter feeds. that stacey dash being african-american was getting particular vitt reol and viciousness because of that. and you read some of the mild tweets frankly. there were other things said to her and about her that were far nastier and far uglier having to do with race. and i think there's also frankly a gender element, too. and that was showing up in the tweets. that being a beautiful woman, a lot of people can't take it. >> some of the things we couldn't say on television. amy holmes, than

. >> where does that process employ to? are people in the white house. is secretary clinton directly involved in that process? >> the process -- if there are disagreements between the post in the field and the diplomatic -- >> would you classify what took place here as a disagreement based on what mr. nordstrom and mr. wood has testified to? >> no, sir. >> this didn't reach the disagreement level? >> i describe it as a dialogue between the post and diplomatic security -- >> this didn't reach a level where you needed weigh in or someone higher needed weigh in? >> no, sir, it did not. >> the national security council to weigh in there? >> no, sir, it did not. >> okay. let me turn to you then, mr. nordstrom. i want to known the e-mail that congressman referenced earlier, the interview you had with congressman and chairman isa back on october 1st, you state this is not an environment where posts should be directed to normalize operations and reduce security resources in accordance with artificial timelines. yet, today in your testimony it was a little different tenor, as i think the ranking membe
